thank you but i am aware of these sites. For further clarification,
Jones New York, Ralph Lauren Chaps, Tallia, and DKNY make suits in
athletic cut. Where can I find these names?

Delberts has crap.
Eastern Clothing offers a limited selection.

Hello athleticcutsuit-ga 

well ... now that you have specified some brand names I have a better
idea of
what to look for. 

Easternclothing seems to have a Tallia
in fact they say: 

"Welcome to Eastern Clothing of Watertown! 
Located near Boston in Watertown, Massachusetts, Eastern Clothing has
been a leader in men's fashions for over fifty years!

Take a look at our exclusive athletic-cut suit from fine designer
Following the link brings you to this page
I gave you their number in my previous answer, please let me know if
you already contacted them but couldn't order the Tallia suit.

Otherwise you could try
here is what they claim

They do not specify any brand names but maybe it's worth calling them.

I have also found a number of directories for Big and Tall men
Some of the sites in the directories have their own size charts based
on measurements.
Not knowing your measurements I am not sure if they might have
something to fit you.

I sent email to a number of online retailers that looked like they
could have what you are looking for. I will send you the answers as
soon as I get them.

Sorry for not having a definite answer for you but I will keep
searching until we'll find something

In approximatetly 2-3 weeks, we will have a lovely super 120's (made
in Italy) suit in 4 colors ~ with separate pants.
In other words, you'll be able to buy the pants separately ~
42-long-rise, to fit exactly.
You may need to tailor the coat a little, depending on how it fits,
but this will work extremely well for you.

The quality of the suit is excellent ~ at the top of your list
(perhaps high-end $600 Tallia suits a bit better).  Super 120's is
high-thread count, soft, delicate sheen fabric.

Please call (800)-259-7283 ~ we should be able to help you. 
You may place the order in advance, for delivery when they arrive, in
approcimately 2-3 weeks.

Answer from


Received your e-mail regarding athletic cut suits. None of the brand
names you listed make an athletic cut suit. However, Palm Beach makes
3 different colors in athletic cuts: a grey multistripe, an olive
multistripe and a navy multistripe. They are all 3 button styles; no 2
button available. Trousers can be ordered in any waist size with a
choice of pleated or plain front. Usual availability is about 2 weeks
from the manufacturer not taking into account that something may be on
backorder. The selling price is $375 which is about $100 less than the
suggested retail of $475.

Let us know if we can be of further help.
